The awesomeness of Miko opening up a can of hurt on Starscream aside, for those who are still bothered by the fact that a mere human went toe-to-toe with a Decepticon and won, watch these two videos:
After this, a couple of other Decepticons make a grab for the Autobots' female human ally Minerva, and order the Optimus Prime lookalike Ginrai to stand down or they will kill her. The other guy Sixknight, however, is unaware of this blackmail, gets free, and wants to continue the fight...
If you've read Exodus, wanna read the War For Cybertron comic? PM me.

I get the point you're making Sabrblade, but there's a not-unconnected reason I don't like this particular Japanese series either, and it's not because I'm not fond of reading subtitles.
For me, it's not about the plausibility of a human beating a Decepticon, but more a case of do we need it? I know in this case it made sense for Miko to give it a shot, but that sense does still come from the writers who could've done things differently.
As it happens I enjoyed Miko's scrap greatly. I just hope it doesn't set a presidents for the last seven episodes.
